You can pick from a variety of themes to give your guests a little treat. For a brunch baby shower we love the idea of a cereal bar (grab some of your childhood favorites) or a yogurt bar for a healthy option. Add some color to your breakfast bar with these cute paper straws. And for an evening shower, pick up some of these easy to assemble popcorn boxes and build a popcorn bar with all the fixins’. Or put together a pregnancy cravings bar with the mom-to-be’s favorite snacks and decorate the table with these fun craving food tents.

Baby showers are about celebrating, but also a time for sharing advice. One way for guests to share all their helpful tips is by having them fill out advice cards. Choose a design that goes with the theme of your shower. Modern Beautiful makes great advice cards that can be customized to your style. For a simple vintage look, these letterpress cards work perfectly.
